. it would have to be your vocable. obama is offering a for "new york times as much in tax increases as phony spending cuts. the opposite ratio of what they cheated reagan and bush with, he's trying to cheat mitch mcconnell with. almost no spending restraint at all. i understand why some people think out loud about hypothetical. the challenge is for those republicans who say i might do this if you did that, is the new york times takes the first of foia words , "i might raise taxes"and, they put you in the category and they don't listen to the serious and sophisticated comments of some of the congress people have said about this large a spending cut. so, tactically, it's a mistake. nobody here is the spending cuts you are talking about, because you get cut off after you say i will raise taxes. end of conversation. they put you on the tax increases. it's not fair to some of those guys. the good news is, these are the same people who two years ago made the same, we were doing the budget control act with the debt ceiling increase. we might do this. the republicans did not do that. i thin

question president obama has a socialist leanings. he wants to redistribute wealth. i do. new line-- once this debate is over, the president may have a large agenda. that agenda is that the president wants a wealth tax. that would be different. it was all about it, in 1913. the president wants say wealth tax. that means you tax their assets and not their income. he talked about how mitt romney had these accounts of sure. if the tax the wealth of an individual, then they cannot do this by saying i want to have a wealth tax. he has to negotiate with republicans and couple it with a flat tax. we have to overhaul our tax system. i think that is what the president's intentions are. host: when is your review show broadcast -- when is your radio show broadcast and what do you talk about? us radio. is on serious rad we have gone into the situation where all we want to do -- the left wants to divinize the right and the right ones to demonize the left. if people do not agree, you want to vanquish them and make them appear to be irrelevant. something happens when people and they convinced the americ

under fire. television analysts gathered last week to hear some distressing news, showing that president obama far outperformed mitt romney in managing to target using their single expenditures of the campaign, tv advertising. the story goes on to look at the strategies of the campaign and where they were effective and where they were not. from "the washington times," a drone is deployed to spy on a farmer. host: our question for you this morning is what you think about tax deductions. what would you be willing to give up? keith, minn., good morning. caller: you are asking what people could afford to give up. i think that a lot of people cannot afford to give up anything, they are constantly being taken advantage of, having their money stolen from them. everyone is allowed to basically take advantage of the public and we have no representation. a lot of people are just struggling to hold on, rather than continuing with everyone asking them, telling them they have to sacrifice. we have nothing left to sacrifice. we have given up everything, savings, everything. corporations, car

costs of bringing on a new employee. some of the small businessmen who met up with president obama have been beneficiaries of that program. host: how many times has this unemployment insurance been extended? guest: twice before, i believe it. the most important time for our current fiscal of talks is 2010. that is when president obama extended all of the bush tax cut rates that are about to expire. host: we want to get the first question from cindy on twitter. sen the it's the exact dynamic that is a problematic in this. -- guest: cindy it's the exact problem as a problematic. it will only increase government spending. unemployment benefits are a stopgap measure that prevent people who might be able to get work from getting other government benefits. the most egregious example is social security disability. as people start to exhaust their unemployment benefits, they apply for disability. that is a good program designed for people who are unable to work. as more and more people who can work apply for it, that drains the resources. once they get on that, they do not get back into th

loves the story of president obama's comeback and the new york time describes him as disciplined and unyielding and focused on this and i think there are other media stories as well. the second media story or narrative. which one wants to grow by virtue of the tax increases and get new perspective from the mainstream media and the third is mcconnell and boehner back and forth. and the media want to praise him if they raise taxes and. the sort of grover norquist and he's a funny kind much a guy and during the interviews, endearing, and put the burden on him and the third is rebellion and charles krauthammer and steve forbes and the media like that story the least. >> i think there's a 6th story, jim. which is the media that quote progressive media of msnbc, tipping down to the white house to have an earnest chat to chat with the president about how important not going over the fiscal cliff is, and how important it is that they persuade their viewers to lean on those people who oppose them, so that they can actually avoid the cliff. that's amazing. >> you know, the media did not includ
